Ha, you beat me to it, Minnie. I agree with you on both counts. I'll add that it's a relatively recent idea that we try to require a nominee to take a stand on hot button issues before they're nominated.  And even if they're a liberal it's no guarantee that they will be a consistent vote...
WANT!
Conservative scholars like her; I'm not sure how many will support her nomination. I'm in the field today (eveyone stand still so I can count you) so all I can do right now is re-post this from the other thread: As soon as I heard the criticism of Kagan's hiring record at Harvard I did a search on...
Rachel Maddow blew it tonight on the Kagan nomination on at least 2 counts. As soon as I heard the criticism of Kagan's hiring record at Harvard I did a search on the web. It took me less than 10 seconds to find a pretty good response that the White House put out last week. The quick and dirty is...
I think they mean she an it's an open secret that she's a lesbian lesbian. I'm still not sure that's the case. But that's not stopping the far right from attacking her perceived sexuality. Here's an article from ThinkProgress and the position the far right is taking on the question of her sexuality...
It is factually incorrect that Kagan has a "rather conservative" record. She's not a judge and her paper trail is almost non-existent. One issue that she's on record publicly with is Don't Ask; Don't Tell which she called, "a moral injustice of the first order." We also know she supported and...

(almost) anywhere with seasons.
Have you seen the promos? I can't wait.
Good news/bad news: Jobs grow by most in 4 years; jobless rate rises 9.9 pct. as people resume searches http://www.talkingpointsmemo.com/news/2010/05/jobs_up_290000_jobless_rat...
It looks like the community on this site was divided — not so much on other gay/lesbian sites like AfterEllen, The Advocate, Curve, Dorothy Snarker — the blogs and comments on those sites were generally pretty postive. Heather Hogan's review of her book on AfterEllen definitely made me want to read...
"Whatup son?" Awesome.
I was being serious. I hadn't heard those rumors and was somewhat appalled that someone with insider knowledge of the industry, like Kelly, seemed to be outing her.
Fight the gray. My younger sisters all have da gray but I took after the other side of the family. (My mom's dad didn't go gray until he was well into his 70s.)
Thanks; it's actually 2 or 3 years old, but I love that ball cap — original film merchandise from A League of Their Own. The fastener whoozit on the back of the cap only has 3 stubs left. MEDIC!
Looks like she's already been thinking about it, Minnie: So this Don’t Ask Don’t Tell thing… I’m so angry about it. I’m so angry with George Bush and Dick Cheney, and if President Obama doesn’t do something — I know he’s trying and it takes time, I know he can’t flip a switch — but if he doesn’t...
deedee, there are some lesbian / gay sites who aren't slamming her. One of the bloggers at AfterEllen reviewed her book. Very positive: http://www.afterellen.com/blog/stuntdouble/more-than-visibility-chely-wr... Dorothy Snarker also has some nice things to say: http://dorothysurrenders.blogspot.com...
Are you outing Dolly Parton? Is she a closeted feminine-appearing (since "femme", "girly", etc is offensive) lesbian?
